DIR-868L 5GHz Wireless Band Settings Issue [Or Not]
« on: August 19, 2013, 09:26:52 AM »

I've been using the DIR-868L since Friday as an AP.  I really like it so far and it complimens the DGL-5500 very well  ;D

In setting up the 5GHz wireless band, I came across a possible issue.  When I selected WIRELESS CHANNEL: 5.825 - Channel 165, the CHANNEL WIDTH went to 20MHz and was grayed out.  I wasn't able to select 20/40/80MHz AUTO.  I noticed the 868L 5GHz wireless signal wasn't showing up on inSSIDer.

After bumping the setting down one notch on the 5GHz wireless band (WIRELESS CHANNEL: 5.805 - Channel 161), I was able to select 20/40/80MHz AUTO (box not grayed out).  Now, the 868L 5GHz wireless signal was showing up on inSSIDer.

I'm still learning, so go easy (if this is the way Channel 165 is intended to work)  ::)

I'll have to check this out or if someone else can confirm and verify.

Also can you change to single mode AC then change the channel to 165 and post your results?

Please post a picture of the section with the grayed out option please.

This is probably a issue with the N and A modes not supporting those channel width on channel 165 thus the router automatically defaults back to 20Mhz only when on that channel in mixed mode. Seems like single mode AC works though.  ;)
